Overview

For a hundred years, the people of Prairie Bend have whispered Nathaniel's name in wonder and fear.  Some say he is a folktale, created to frighten children on cold winter nights.  Some swear he is a terrifying spirit retumed to avenge the past.  But soon . . . very soon . . . some will learn that Nathaniel lives still--that he is darkly, horrifyingly real.  Nathaniel--he is the voice that calls to young Michael Hall across the prairie night . . . the voice that draws the boy into the shadowy depths of the old, crumbling, forbidden barn . . . that chanting, compelling voice he will follow faithfully beyond the edge of terror.

This book was okay. There were a few very gripping and suspencful parts, but it wasn't as good as John Saul's other books. It was okay.

Disclaimer: I am an unabashed John Saul fan and have been for years. Nathaniel was a good read, although I have read other John Saul books that engaged me a little more, however, this one is up to his excellent standards. I was immediately engaged and interested in the story. Rural life, odd family secrets real or imagined ..... supernatural or generational events?! I liked it!

I've always been on the fence about John Saul, but I really enjoyed this book What really bothered me was that in the middle typos and errors became really frequent. I expect good grammar, especially when I'm paying for it.

Not as exceptional as it is the ending did not make any sense I was disappointed in this one not like his other stuff that he wrote. John Saul often pulls the rug out from under his readers but not this one.

I've never had to leave a bad review before, but this book was a waste of time and incredibly stupid. Beware! And yes, I read it from front to back.
